The VP’s new lead in 백악관 efforts on voting rights and Biden’s appointment for Harris to lead a COVID-19 vaccination tour suggests she’s getting ready to pile more onto her plate but Fox News contributor 아리 플라이셔 disputed the assumption on “마사 맥컬럼과의 이야기” 목요일.
The former White House press secretary argued that it’s traditional for the vice president to be prepared in case of emergency, especially under the circumstances that Biden is historically the oldest sitting president at 78 살이에요.
“I think it’s actually what you do when it’s good government – you appoint your vice president to run certain task forces and run point on certain issues,” 그는 말했다. “That’s normal. What’s fascinating here, 물론이야, is that you have a 78-year-old president… I can’t imagine in a million years is actually going to run for re-election.”
Fleischer explained that by the time 82-year-old Biden is up for re-election in 2024, 해리스, 꽤, would have a leg up as the leading Democratic candidate and outgoing VP.
“I think everything involved in Kamala Harris’ future is immediately suspect about whether she’s going to run in replace of Joe Biden in a wide-open Democratic Primary,” 그는 말했다. “Everything is also political for her given Joe Biden’s age.”
According to Fox News approval numbers, Harris is less favorable than Biden at 49% which Fleischer said is not surprising considering she wasn’t a “very popular” candidate in 2020.
“Kamala Harris is not going to have this handed to her,” 그는 말했다. “There’s going to be a dozen or so Democrats challenging Vice President Harris to be the Democratic nominee.”
